New Routine For This Diabetic

So, I’ve started a new exercise routine with a buddy. Cycling at 5:30AM.  It’s been fantastic.  Road bikes + lights + no traffic on the roads = awesome.

I basically wake up at 4:45AM, dial back my basal insulin rate on my OmniPod 50% for period of one hour. Then, I eat a ThinkThin protein bar and take off.  I also drink a drink called Spark while on my ride to keep blood sugar up and steady.

Here’s the nerdy data from our ride…

Sunday Morning Ride – Gorgeous Day – Low Blood Sugar

I hit 40 MPH today on a descent. That was crazy. 40 MPH.  Good way to die…

It was a little chilly, but no rain. Today was the first day of the year I had to pull on some arm warmers. I picked them up over at Chain Love, a one deal at a time site. I’ve picked up some great deals there. Usually 40%-60% off cycling related gear…

I had to cut my rid short because my blood glucose dipped a little to low. I went a little later in the morning, so I had already eaten breakfast with a slight bolus. My conclusion is that I still had a little too much insulin on board. It’s OK though. I still got some great climbs in and some pretty pics. Here’s my stats and some photos:
